  1. Single Mom says:

    I am a single mother who has raised her children (boy and girl)on my own. My son is kind, well-mannered, joyful, hard working teenager who donates his time to charity. I struggle to make ends meet same as others but I have sacrificed my time and all of my recourses to them. Single homes cannot be blamed for the young men of today acting up or not getting an education. There are those that have both parents and they still have issues. Some single parents are more concerned with partying, buying things for themselves and not focusing on their children’s needs – materially, physically or mentally. Parent(s) should be devoting their time and energy on their children. That is why we were blessed to have them in the first place. It is about giving and doing for them first before thinking of ourselves. We have time to do that when they are grown. My children are everything to me. I am extremely proud of them and know that they will be a great mom or dad to their own children as they retained the good values that I taught them.
